Ben Johnson Found! August 11 on TCM Summer Under the Stars

Wednesday’s post: Shirley MacLaine

Mostly Westerns on Thursday as TCM’s Summer Under the Stars makes an interesting selection with Ben Johnson.

The Ben Johnson schedule features three Westerns each directed by masters of the genre John Ford and Sam Peckinpah; Peter Bogdanovich’s The Last Picture Show which won Johnson the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor; and at 8 pm the seemingly out of place Mighty Joe Young! But this is what I love about Summer Under the Stars, a Western schedule pretty much all day with that odd duck slammed right into the prime slot of the entire day! Enjoy —
